As the Neva Lomason Memorial Library continues major renovations, it is still offering Summer programming including the Summer Reading Program at Carrollton’s Center for the Arts and other community activities. Since the library’s closure on April 1 two satellite libraries were opened. Both the Tracey Stallings Community Center and the Log Cabin building are focused on serving the needs of the community.
The community center is located at 118 South White Street. At this location book returns will be accepted, plus small adult and teen collections will be available for checkout. Eight computers are available for use, along with wifi and printing, and patrons can do business on their accounts.
In addition to these services, the Log Cabin which was home to the Carrollton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau at 102 North Lakeshore Drive is currently serving as both a small children’s library and a hold location. There they are accepting returns and allowing patrons to do business on their accounts.
Hours for both locations include Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The West Georgia Regional Library System also reports that pop-up libraries will appear throughout the city in the coming months. Click here to visit their Facebook page for additional information on the pop-up libraries.
Once completed, the renovation of the library will provide 10,000 square feet of public space. The library is expected to re-open in December of this year. For more updates on the renovation progress and summer programming, click here.
The Barker Book House, directly next door to the Neva Lomason Library, remains open.
